The Requests Post

We've had a bunch of requests from people who would like to donate for things that haven't been offered yet - small fandom vids and fics, art for specific fics, etc. Instead of bids, we're going to set it up so the person requesting can provide the amount they will donate to one of the listed organizations/groups/government agencies (minimum of $1 per 100 words, or the equivalent) in gratitude for the offering.

We are doing one post for all types of requests, but please try to keep it to smaller fandoms when it comes to fic/art/vids/graphics, as most of the big fandoms are covered in the various Offering posts, and we don't want this to take away from that.

If you have any questions, please do not ask them on this post - ask them here instead.

Since we are going to have a second round of auctions later this winter, the goal for this round will be for things that can be delivered by February 14, although if are ok with something with a later delivery date, please indicate that in the Additional Info section.

This auction will close on Wednesday, January 20, 2010 at approximately noon Eastern Standard Time.

Rules

Offer your services by commenting to the Requesting post.

Please do not delete comment containing an offer - if you have an issue, please comment to your bid explaining what happened, or contact a Comm mod.

How to Offer
Please list the type of item and fandom (if relevant) in the Subject to your post.

Paste the following into the Comment window and fill in the non-optional spaces.

WHIP IT FEMSLASH OMG.


omg this is a GREAT idea. Also can I just start off by saying I think this is a great opportunity to request non-white-male pairings/fandoms/fics? Girls and Chromatic fandoms/characters need more love!

IM: gtalk is best, thesevenlines

I am looking for: 3,000 words-ish of Ruthless/Maven Whip-It femslash.

Fandom: ♥Whip It♥
Additional Info (optional): Porn would make me v. v. happy but basically ANY Bliss/Maven would make me happy. <3 I will also accept fanart, and by "accept" i mean grovel with joy
Donation Amount: $50

Re: WHIP IT FEMSLASH OMG.

I could do the 3000 word story, if you want! It would probably be (a little bit in the) futurefic, if that's cool, but I could definitely aim for porn.

My writing is here:

I am looking for: slash fic/art

Fandom: Percy Jackson & Olympians slash

Additional Info (optional): let's chat about pairings and ratings and such. I'm pretty open.

Donation Amount: $10.00 for 1000+ words

Oh, I've been itching to try writing some Percy Jackson fic (never done it before), possibly as an SPN xover. But, I'm already auctioning off fic in fandoms I have more experience in, and I don't think I can write two things before 2/14... Tell you what--if no one gets it for you this round, I'll do for the one later this spring (if you still want it!)

(my auction post here)

cheers!

I am looking for: a fanfic of around or over 1,000 words.

Fandom: The Dark is Rising.

Additional Info (optional): My favourite pairings are Will/Bran, Bran/Barney and Simon/Will. There's some fic out there for the first two, but basically none but mine for Simon/Will. I like them aged up to at least sixteen for romance/sex, and I'd rather no angst. Any fic for this fandom would be awesome though, and I feel like the three Drews are rather ignored in fic...

Donation Amount: $25. Would be more, but. I'm a student, so you can imagine my means.

(Please note that I'm offering fic for TDIR fandom myself, on the first "offering words" post and on the lightning round.)

I am looking for: Two different things:

+ Someone who can walk me through the various options available for taking fullscreen manual caps. I have a monitor that goes to a decent resolution and I'd like to know what program out there will be best for taking manual caps of the entire screen while I have the media maximized to full window. Basically, I'd like to talk to someone who has a good method of doing manual fullscreen capping and can answer my questions and give me firsthand opinions of the various methods out there. Via chat or e-mail both fine.

+ Someone who can, via chat, walk me through ripping a DVD and making my first clip from said ripped source. Obviously you could direct me to a tutorial and I'd go through it before we chatted and see if I could manage it on my own. But I do need some help figuring out what software is best to use for my purposes (ie, *which* tutorial to go to) and at the end of the day it's just nice to talk to someone who's got firsthand experience and can offer me a bit of insight into these processes.

Fandom: N/A.

Additional Info (optional): I'm not looking to take up huge chunks of your time, in case it comes across sounding that way. A few hours some weekend is what I'm picturing.

Donation Amount: $12.50 for each, or $25 if you're some kind of amazing wizard who can help me with both. :)

Donation Amount: $20 for anything 1,000 words or up or $40 if you'll do something around or over 5,000 words.

Okay, I'm up for it, since it's for a good cause. Feel free to make more detailed suggestions about what you'd like to read.

Re: Sherlock Holmes is a small fandom, right?

So someone else will probably leap on this that you would probably prefer, but I thought I would leave a comment anyway.

I'm willing to write this, but there are a few things you should know (and a few things I'd like to know):

-I've never written Sherlock Holmes fanfiction before
-My old writing stuff is at prsnl_fairytale
-My new writing stuff is scattered across yewook, wenliu, and my personal journal
-How much plot are you looking for? And what kind?
-Do you have a deadline?

Star Trek/The Sentinel Crossover

User Name:
Email address: heeroluva@hotmail.com
YM/AIM/Gtalk/ICQ (optional): heeroluva

I am looking for: A longish (5k+) crossover fic

Fandom: Star Trek/The Sentinel

Additional Info (optional): This is an idea that's been bouncing around my head for years, but I know I wouldn't be able to do it justice. The idea is that in the Star Trek universe Sentinels are known of but somewhat rare. There has never been a Vulcan Sentinel before (at least documented or since the teachings of Surak), but Spock gets stranded in the wilderness somewhere for a period of time and tada he's suddenly a Sentinel. Maybe it's because of his human blood or maybe something else (your choice). Bonus points if they can't figure out what the problem is at first. But I think it would be really interesting to see how Spock a Vulcan who highly values complete control of himself deals with loosing all that control. Of course Kirk would end up being his Guide and a romantic relationship ensues (but not without the prerequisite angst). :)

Donation Amount: I'll offer $35, though if you feel that you can do some huge, epic, multi-part fic, I'd be more than willing to negotiate.

Re: Star Trek/The Sentinel Crossover

I would love to write this! Would you give me two weeks to write? My AIM/e-mail is kirar@cox.net. And $35 would be perfect, no need to add more. I have a question: do you want the Star Trek to be based on the latest movie or original series? Let me know.

User Name: darchildre

Email address: darchildre@gmail.com

I am looking for: fic, 1000+ words

Fandom: Bride of Frankenstein

Additional Info (optional): You would be my favorite person ever if you managed to write Henry Frankenstein/Dr Pretorius slash but honestly, any fic based on this movie would be fantastic.

Donation Amount: $20

YM/AIM/Gtalk/ICQ (optional):

I am looking for: Some Office fic. I'd prefer Jan/Meredith, but if you don't like femmeslash (or you'd just kinda like a challenge), I've always wondered how a BBC/NBC crossover with Gareth/Jan would work.

Fandom: The Office

Additional Info (optional): A PG-13 or R rating (real-life, neither sanitized for our protection nor amplified for our gratification) would be lovely. For either fic I'd like it to have the feel and tone of an early Tom Waits song - debauched, depressed, and barely holding on to a veneer of professionalism. Season/setting entirely up to the author.

Donation Amount: $10 per 1000 words, up to a maximum of $50-. Donations will go to Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres

Thanks, and I can't wait to read!

I'd love to to do this, if you wouldn't mind me as a writer!

User Name: rosehiptea

I am looking for: a header + instructions

Fandom: Pride and Prejudice, the miniseries with Colin Firth in it.

Additional Info (optional): A long time ago (also for charity) I had someone make me a Pride and Prejudice layout, which they set up themselves. However something happened to their Photobucket account, so now I only have an error message for a header. So what I need is another header. And I need step-by-step instructions in how to put the header up, as I have no idea (unless you want to do it for me, which is also fine as I can change my password for you and then change it back.) I don't have screencaps so I'm hoping someone else will.

Donation Amount: $20, which is probably not enough but is all I can afford right now unfortunately.

I can do the header for you and help you put it up. :D

Email address: marginaliana [at] hotmail
YM/AIM/Gtalk/ICQ (optional): nope

I am looking for: An experienced vidder who is willing to give a shot at vidding QI. I say "experienced" because this is a source where it's mostly people sitting down and talking, and I think it will take some ingenuity to get the vid to be not boring. Um. But I have confidence it can be done! Just not by me (newbie vidder). I have a song and a vague concept in mind for this.

Fandom: QI

Additional Info (optional): I am totally willing to wait longer than Feb 14 for this, and I can point you at downloadable source if you don't have it. But you should probably be familiar with QI before you say "yes, I will do this."

Donation Amount: $50

1 Animated Icon, Psych.

User Name: trascendenza
Email address: diminutive_giant[at]yahoo[dot]com

I am looking for: An animated icon of a Gus moment from the "American Duos" episode (2x01).

Fandom: Psych.

Additional Info (optional): Okay, so there's this moment when Shawn is trying to talk Juliet into being their dance teacher, and Gus does this little back-and-forth head motion thing that just kills me with amazing. I'd love an animated icon of that particular scene.

Donation Amount: $5 (sorry it's not higher, but after bidding on a few people I'm starting to run a bit low -_-)

I am looking for: A general mood theme.
Fandom: Since the fandoms I am most craving mood themes for are cult classics, I'm going to give several options, in order of preference.

-Popular
-Conan O'Brien
-Strangers With Candy
-Firefly
-Fakenews (The Daily Show/The Colbert Report)

Additional Info (optional): I'd much prefer an animated mood theme, but, again, as all of these are niche fandoms, any high quality mood theme is fine with me.
Donation Amount: $35 for animated, $25 for non-animated.

Edited at 2010-01-15 01:15 am (UTC)

Just to make sure I understand, by "mood theme" you mean those little mood icons that you can select to have on your livejournal posts?
